Smokey Mountain in Manila is known as a notoriously impoverished community, a garbage dumpsite the size of a huge mountain. Garbage was continuously burned, hence the “smokey” name. Majority of residents have not completed high school & have minimal digital literacy. KLIKme hopes to make a positive difference.
One of our KLIKme Learners shared this video introducing their community.
The KLIKme Community Learning Facilitator is the shepherd on the ground for the community of 100 KLIKme Learners. Meet our inspiring KLIKme Smokey-PH Faci, Jessica "Jhec" Alegre.
Despite being in prison and abandoned by family and friends, Bernadette Peñalosa has not given up hope and is happy to be given a chance to pursue her dreams through KLIKme.
A KLIKme Community is made possible by sponsors who financially contribute to cover the program expenses, namely:
- the Facilitator Allowances
- cost of Smartphones and Laptops
- some Learning Center expenses
- seed money for Learners' incentives
- part of the KLIKme Mobile App development and maintenance
- part of the KLIKme Learning Materials development
- training, support, and oversight of Facts and Learners
THANK YOU KLIKme ANGELS!
